Blackpool close on former United starlet

Blackpool are closing in on their first summer signing, with Bojan Djordjic reportedly set to sign a two-year deal at Bloomfield Road.

The former Manchester United trainee, who spent time working under Ian Holloway at Plymouth Argyle, has spent the past four years plying his trade across Europe, more recently in Hungary with Videoton.

Djordjic spent six unsuccessful years at Old Trafford after being dubbed 'the next Ryan Giggs', making just one senior league appearance whilst with the Red Devils and spending loan spells with Sheffield Wednesday, AGF and Red Star Belgrade.

Available on a free transfer, 29-year-old Djordjic would be the first of ten possible signings this summer, with Tangerines chairman Karl Oyston confirming the club are looking to rebuild ahead of the Npower Championship campaign.

"We always assemble a squad each summer, we have done it for the 12 years I've been here," Oyston told the Blackpool Gazette.


"Anyone who thinks you have a week of making 10 phonecalls and 10 players turn up and agree personal terms in five minutes, have a medical and sign, is naive in the extreme. It doesn't work like that.

"It is more like a game of poker. We're going for better players than we ever have before."
